Today was one of the saddest days of my life...we said goodbye to my Aunt Hazel. She was my mentor, my Aunt, my Mom and my Hero. She was one of the strongest ladies I have ever known. Hazel has fought many battles and they only made her stronger. I loved her with all my heart and will miss her everyday for the rest of my life!

David, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We were just thinking of her this past Monday .
Your mom was a special lady. She was always supportive of me and my family during our time at Dutch Fork and we will be forever grateful for that.
Blessings, Richard & Gail 🙏

Hazel is a very loving cousin. She was so easy to talk to about a lot of things. It is so hard to think she is not here but
I will see her again. I love you so much. God Bless.
